21 Jun Earthquake in Turkey and Syria
How to donate to Turkey Earthquake? On February 6, 2023, magnitude 7.8 and 7.5 earthquakes struck southern Turkey and western Syria, causing massive damage in both countries. The initial earthquake was caused by a fault 18 kilo-meters (11 miles) beneath the earth’s surface. Because of its shallow depth, the earthquake caused violent shaking in areas hundreds of kilometers away from the epicenter. The first quake was followed nine hours later by a 7.5 magnitude event, along with hundreds of smaller aftershocks.
In Turkey, Gaziantep, Kahramanmaras, Hatay, Adiyaman, Diyarbakir, Adana, Osmaniye, Sanliurfa, Malatya and, in Syria, the northwest province of Aleppo,were among the hardest hit, with many buildings and homes being destroyed or severely damaged. The death toll has surpassed 59,259 people.
